None of This or None of That Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

That's right! No oil, no flour, no eggs, and no added sugar in these cookies! I have been eyeing these cookies for a short time now, but always forgot to get an ingredient so I kept putting them off. Well no more! I finally had everything on hand and whipped these up. My kids loved them! They smell wonderful baking too.

You can also make them gluten free using gluten free oats. Also you could probably use another nut butter if you're allergic to peanuts.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
from The Skinny Fork, gave me about 28 cookies

2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
1/3 C. Creamy Peanut Butter
2/3 C. Unsweetened Applesauce
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
Dash of Ground Cloves
Dash of Ground Nutmeg
1 1/2 C. Quick or Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 C. Nuts, chopped
1/4 C. Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 C. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix together the bananas, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla, and spices. Add in the oats, nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut; stir until well combined. Spoon a rounded 2 tbsp. ( I just use my small scooper = 1TBL per cookie) of the cookie mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving an inch or two between each and flatten slightly. Bake for 20-30 minutes and allow to cool slightly.

Pin It!

Do you mean 2 teaspoon or 2 tablespoon size cookies? Based on the photo and the bake time I, guessing bigger, but I have the oxo scoops and the small is 2t and the medium is 1 1/2 T so wanted to confirm,

Hi Helen, my small scooper is a 1 TBL size amount. I use one of those per cookie, yes they bake about 25 minutes.

I used my 1.5 T scoop and did 30 minutes. We'll see what my son and hubby think of them after dinner :)
